One of Belgians leading radio’s summarized it like this ‘Guys from 15 and 19 years old, who get their inspiration from Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jeff Buckley and The Doors, surely trigger our attention. When they sound like a young Keziah Jones and sing like a thirty year old, we are definitely impressed.
